US Casino Payment Methods | Casinos with Easy Deposits + Withdrawals
Being an American online casino player is not easy. Since 2006, the UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) made many casino and financial companies leave the U.S. gambling market.
However, there are still good casinos out there. You need to do some research and make sure the casino is worth your time. The two mains things to check are if the casino accepts your preferred payment method and if it will pay back your winnings.

Popular U.S. Casino Payment Methods
Here you can find a list of the most common casino payment methods in the U.S.A. and the most recommended online casinos for each one. Below that, there is a short summary about each deposit and withdrawal option.
The most common way to deposit funds is by credit card (90% of deposits). Visa is by far the easiest one. It is accepted by almost every U.S. friendly online casino. If you have Visa as an option, you should use it.
The second most popular credit card is Mastercard, followed by Amex as a distant third. Only a few casinos accept Amex and you still may have to try a few times for your payment to go through.
Vouchers are a great solution that have become more and more popular. The main advantage is that they always work. Not all casinos accept them, but if they do, it works almost 100% of the time. They have different names (EZ Voucher, Secure Voucher, etc..) but they are all pretty similar.
Here is how it works. Click on the link in the casino cashier and you will be redirected to the prepaid voucher site. You buy the voucher for the amount you want to deposit. Then you paste the voucher code back in the casino cashier, and that’s it.
Finally, you can make casino deposits using bank wire transfers. There are some advantages in using this option. But the major disadvantage is that it takes too long. Bank wire transfers can take around 2 days until you see the money in your account. We think that takes all of the fun out of playing. With credit cards and vouchers, your account is credited instantaneously.
Withdrawal Methods For U.S. Players
There are two main methods that you can use to withdraw your winnings: check and wire transfer.
Wire transfer withdrawal is available at every U.S. friendly casino. The transfer itself takes approximately 24-48 hours. However, the processing times varies from one casino to another and so do the fees. We recommend that you check the casino banking page for the exact details.
Checks naturally take a bit longer than wires, but it mainly depends on the check company itself. Some casinos are quite fast. It can be as quick as 2-4 days, or as slow as two weeks. You can check out our Fastest Payout Casino listing for more details.
Rapid Transfer – this is a special payment method used only by Slots LV and Ignition Casinos. It means you will receive your payment within 48 hours, which is pretty amazing for U.S. online casinos. The downside is that you can only cash out $650 per payment. There are some fees ($20 – $60, depending on the total amount).
